    Planet Line over New York Bridge

    Explanation: There's an interesting sky to see if you wake up before
    the Sun. Lined up on toward the eastern horizon are four planets in a
    row. The planets are so bright they can even be seen from the bright
    sky inside a city. In fact, the featured image was taken from New York
    City, USA, with the foreground highlighted by the RFK (Triborough)
    Bridge. Pictured, the planets are, left to right, Jupiter, Venus, Mars,
    and Saturn. The planets all appear in a row because they all orbit the
    Sun in the same plane. This plane, called the ecliptic plane, was
    created in the early days of our Solar System and includes all planets,
    including Earth. The morning planet parade will continue throughout
    April and May, and will even be joined by Mercury in June.
